Maria Sharapova and fiancé Alexander Gilkes have welcomed their first child together, a baby boy named Theodore.

Taking to Instagram the former tennis star posted an adorable photo of the new Mum and Dad looking down at their little boy lovingly, letting fans know that he had made his arrival earthside. She captioned the photo:

“Theodore VII•I•MMXXII 🍼🐣
The most beautiful, challenging, and rewarding gift our little family could ask for.”

According to the roman numerals that Maria shared in her caption, baby Theodore was born on the 1st of July making the little man a Cancerian baby.

Throughout her pregnancy, the 35-year-old athlete shared only a couple of photos on her Instagram showing off her baby bump to her followers including one from early June where she stood glowing in a blue and white checkered summer dress. She accompanied the photo with the caption:

“What doesn’t require a waist band, gets my vote these days 🙃👀🐥”

Later in June she struck a pose in an all-black outfit outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

“Sunday funday 🦥”

And finally, only a day before Theodore was born Maria posted a video of her hiking on a trail dressed in maternity activewear and a sweater. The video showed her posing with her baby bump and a delicious-looking chocolate croissant. She wrote:

“🤰Necessities 🐻+ 💦 + 🥐”

We are so excited for Maria and Alexander and will be following along on their journey as they enter the new world of parenthood. All the best wishes to them and their family.

Proudly posing with her baby bump on the beach, Maria made reference to her birthday by captioning her Instagram photo:

This is the first baby for the couple who became engaged back in 2020. Alexander, who was previously married to fashion designer Misha Nanoo, is a British businessman who has friends in royal circles. He was a guest at the Cambridge wedding and also that of Princess Eugenie.

Both Maria and Alexander took to Instagram with black and white photographs to announce their engagement but indicated their union was very much ‘love at first sight’. Maria said:

“I said yes from the first day we met❤️This was our little secret, wasn’t it 💍🥂@gilkesa”

Maria has achieved amazing success over her tennis career, having been world number one, an Olympic medalist and winning numerous titles across many years. We wish her and Alexander all the best in what will be her greatest success – being mama to her precious new babe.

We look forward to following her pregnancy and beyond.
